The case of JonBenet Ramsey is one of America's most famous and mysterious cold cases. 
     
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the unsolved crime. Now 20 years after her murder. JonBenet's brother Burke Ramsey is breaking his silence and giving his first interview ever to Dr. Phil for his season launch. . 
 
JonBenet Ramsey was a 6-year-old child beauty queen when she was brutally murdered inside her family's Colorado mansion on Christmas 
 
The night that your sister, JonBenet, was killed, there were three people in that house that we know the identity of and you're one of those three: you, your mother and father
 
"For a long time media basically made our lives crazy. It's hard to miss the cameras and news trucks in your front yard and we go to the supermarket sometimes and there'd be a tabloid with my picture, JonBenet's picture plastered on the front or they would follow us around. seeing that as a little kid is just kind of chaotic nightmare so I was pretty skeptical of any sort of media like it just made me a very private person. As to what i'm doing now it's the 20th anniversary and apparently still a lot of tension around it and I guess I kind of wanted to make it about remembering her and not just another new story."
 
 
Burke says he felt like it was time to talk about his sisters death 2 decades after the media first swarmed onto that quite street in boulder Colorado. Despite being cleared by DNA evidence, many people STILL speculate that JonBenet's parents, or her brother Burke, could be responsible for the little girl's death. 
Speaking to me, Burke admits "I know people think I did it; that my parents did it." For the first time Burke reveals what he says happened the day his sister was found dead in their basement. 
 
Do you remember waking up that morning? Burke: Yup… the first thing i remember is my mom bursting my room really frantic saying oh my 
gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh… running around my room, now I know looking for Jonbenet I remember her saying where's my baby, where's my baby. 
 
Burke Ramsey was nine years old. He's is 29 years old today.
